1964 Olivetti Lettera 32 Serial # 2283285 1964 Olivetti Lettera 32 typewriter, Serial # 2283285 Paul Moore's 1964 Olivetti Lettera 32 typewriter. 2020-03-29 From the Virtual Typewriter Collection of Paul Moore: 1964 Olivetti Lettera 32 Serial # 2283285 We bought this one on the way back to visit family in the state I grew up in, Ohio. We had just bought another newer Lettera 32 less a month before but this one was only $20 dollars so we had to check it out. It's pretty cool, if the serial number dates it right, that this was built the first year the Lettera 32 was available. Plus it's from the state where I was born. The only differences I can see between the 2 Lettera 32's is that the paint on this old one is a smooth finish and the paint on the newer one is textured and this one has 2 zippers where the 1975 version only has 1 long zipper. I really love the Lettera 32s and 33s for essentially punching above their weight. They type with the ease of a much larger machine while still being on the verge of being ultra portable.
